    Vizios look the best to me but I heard they don't last long. I like my Samsung. It's old technology though and I would like an UHD TV

    Got a couple of these for the office - https://www.vizio.com/en-ca/tvs/mseries/m55e0.html. Very good quality for the price, great value. Have had them for about 6 months, so can't comment on how long they last yet, but they get a lot of use and so far they've been well worth it.

    If youre upgrading from an lcd/led tv I would say get an OLED. You want the upgrade to be good enough to make it feel worth it.

    1080p to uhd is not worth it imo
    1080p to uhd hdr not quite worth it
    1080p to UHD OLED HDR worth it

    The Vizio I bought in 2008 still works as good as ever. And I used it as the main (living room) tv until Thanksgiving of last year

    Depends on size and how much of a TV snob you are. I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with the top of the line Samsung OLEDs. I have no idea what TV's cost now a days though since I haven't looked into getting a new TV for quite some time. Wait till Black Friday/Cyber Monday timeframe.

    That is why I have no idea wtf is out these days, lol. Is it UHD? I have no idea.
     
  11. I say go with a polaroid tv. They're dirt cheap, and every other one lasts for 2 lifetimes. The rest all last a bit shorter than a lifetime original movie. Feeling lucky?

    They are, but those wallpaper TVs are definitely not under $1000 and they won't be in the near future.

    Go Vizio P series. One of the best for the price. It was rated in the top 5 with OLEDs last year (dropped a few spots this year on the overall list) by RTing the best TV rating site. But it is still one of the most recommended this year for mid-range TVs.(if you or your kids game it also has a true 120hz refresh at 4k with decent imput lag)

    Best 4k tvs for high end, mid-range, and budget tvs.
    https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/best/by-features/hdr

    Its ratings, everything from brightness, blacks, viewing angle, etc.
    https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/vizio/p-series-2018
    "Value for price beaten by : " none "

    I own one and the colors are off the hook IMO, its honestly up there with some of the most expensive OLEDs TVs on the market.

    My downside with it is, it doesnt downscale well. So anything under 1080p looks pretty eh to me but i dont really watch 720p and lower so im fine with it. It up-scales from 1080 to 4k fantastic though.

    I don't understand what you mean by downscale. Anything under 1080 gets converted to less than 1080???

    Anything under 1080p doesnt play great as stated. 1080p also isnt the lowest resolution. Most TVs go as low as 480p, and if you choose to downscale to these lower resolutions from 4k it just looks bad, too much info in they are pushing into one small pixel with downscaling.

    "A video scaler is a system which converts video signals from one display resolution to another; typically, scalers are used to convert a signal from a lower resolution (such as 480p standard definition) to a higher resolution (such as 1080i high definition), a process known as "upconversion" or "upscaling" (by contrast, converting from high to low resolution is known as "downconversion" or "downscaling")."

    I don't know of any 4k TV where the resolution gets scaled down to less than 4k. Yours does?
